That goal with 25 seconds left was awful. He cold have gotten over but fell on his ass instead. I'm starting to wonder if the off time didn't throw off his groove this year. Jimmy is a decent goalie but not having a number 1 defenseman this year has exposed him a lot. Either we get a Number 1 defenseman or a new goaltender.
This is where I see Howard's style or lack thereof, or combinations of styles, however you want to word it hurts him the most.
He is a scrappy, hardworking goalie, that fights to make saves.
That style put him in the out of position.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."
